Personal Statement

My name is Grace Kester and I was born right outside of Guangzhou, China. I was adopted at 9 months old and moved to Atlanta, Georgia where I've grown up with my parents and sister. I'm currently in 8th grade at King's Ridge Christian School in Milton, Georgia where I play soccer and run track in the spring. King's Ridge is a smaller Christian School founded by Jeff Foxworthy, the comedian and John Smoltz, the Hall of Fame Pitcher.

I started playing soccer with my older sister's team when I was 5 years old and have played every season since. I am very quiet and shy by nature and soccer has helped me grow as a person and develop confidence and security within the team atmosphere. I play center back and because I am shy and quiet I tend to lead by example rather than vocally. I pride myself on being at every practice, always being on time and my ability to play almost every minute of every season. I currently play ECNL at Atlanta Fire United and have a great coach Mirza Mustafic who played professionally in Europe for a number of years. 

Atlanta is a hotbed for soccer talent and we have so many amazing girls and teams to compete against. I've played with three girls who have been called into US Girls U15 team camps. Playing with and against those girls every day keeps me sharp and makes me grow as a player. My High School coach, Jessica Rostedt played at Virginia and on US National teams and she is one of my role models in soccer. 

I am just now starting to think about colleges and potential majors but I feel like the academics at King's Ridge will prepare me for a rigorous college experience.  I was diagnosed with a Language Disorder as a young child and it makes me work very hard in the classroom to make good grades, but I feel like I have done a really good job academically so far and maintain a high GPA.

I hope to play soccer in College and also go to a really good academic school. I would love to play Division 1 if I can find the right fit but I have two cousins who played Division 3 sports at Little Ivy schools and their experience at that level was fantastic athletically and academically. I feel confident that I will end up wherever I am supposed to be once I head to college and I plan on succeeding academically and athletically wherever that may be.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
